honestly, at their price point ($600 for a midlength complete upper) - they seem to be the best deal around.
600!! That is making me want to FLY to a location where they have a Fleet Farm. No internet sales :(
It is so great to hear these companies slowly coming back. 600 usd under cuts AA by a good bit and AFAIK the uppers use the same Voodoo melonite barrel and all of AA's good piston stuff. The receiver may be differnt but who cares? I am sure it is just dandy. That is a Really good price...one that I hope other will try to match...a mid length piston upper for 600usd!
Nosir, you cant beat that. I would buy 2 or 3 at that price....Just the AA KIT goes for over 300usd...IF you can FIND one! Add a barrel, nut, delta ring, flash hider and a bolt and an upper with fwd assist, you could not BUILD an upper for less than 600 from an AA kit!
An HK MR556 Upper (similar to the 416) is Two fraking grand. I would LOVE to have this upper, But then I would have to reprofile the barrel (waay to heavy) and Salt Bath Nitride it (not chrome lined) OR buy FOUR HULDRA uppers for about the same amount. And the Huldra barrels are already SBN'd ! :)
